Together, we can protect this essential species for future generations, teaming up and promoting sustainable landscaping practices in the Bay Area. How can you advance beekeeping?

Protect, promote, and preserve pollinator health by integrating bee habitat essentials onto your property or becoming a certified Bee Friendly Farmer (BFF), gardener, or urban beekeeper. Implement positive, incremental changes, including nectar and pollen-bearing flowers for food, offering clean water, and incorporating habitat for nesting like hedgerows or buffer strips of brush. Connect with others, building support in your industry and the community while enjoying the benefits of inviting bees into your landscape.
